Well I've been in Brighton for the last few hours and boy has it been fun - maybe a slight hint of sarcasm there! The strap on my small backpack got caught under its wheels and snapped.. the hostel wouldn't let me check in 'til 2pm so I've had fun with my lovely large backpack which they wouldn't let me pop behind the counter (I really should take a photo of it one of these days.. it's a life form unto itself - I wish it would go on a diet!).. then I asked for directions to the post office from the not so cheery hostel fellow (& found out that it is NOT down the second lane to the left about a 5 minute walk - as directed). Went to the post office and packaged a few things to send home to find out that if I sent them in three parcels instead of one I could save 30 quid (that's about $75 AUD).. so I spent the time I would have to wait to check into the hostel in the post office.. repackaging all of my carefully packaged items, cutting my hands on cello tape dispenses and involuntarily waxing my arms with packing tape... 3 hours later and on a first name basis with the post office staff, I've managed to find an internet cafe to burn off my photos.. but they don't burn CDs :os Guess I've been spoilt in London.. The joys of travelling! But I guess it can only get better! The sun is shinning, I can see the ocean, & I'm in Brighton :o) Well I'm off to dump my pack, and seize the day at hand! Onward march soldier! It's off to conquer Brighton!
